Meet other students who enjoy reading – through our new reading groups

We will not let covid hinder our joy of reading, even if we can not meet in person.

So if you are seeking something social to do with your fellow students, you can participate in our reading groups. Sign up for the reading groups can be done from the 10/2 on this page.
